The velvety frydek is one of my personal fave Alocasia. Quick to size up and relatively easy to grow these guys are very rewarding
Plant A: Very large Frydek. Currently in flower! Very happy, large and in charge. 12cm pot diameter.
Plant B: Baby frydek in a 7cm pot.
Light: This plant requires bright indirect, light to retain its striking colours.
Watering: Watering Alocasia little and often is fantastic for keeping them consistently moist. This +being said, please do not leave this plant standing in water. Allow the water to fully drain from the nursery pot before returning to a saucer/cover pot.
Other: Please keep your plant away from hot and cold drafts.
Please note: Alocasia can go dormant. Unfortunately especially in the cooler months, rough shipping can send them into dormancy. They are also generally quite fussy to ship, so please know if you purchase this plant - it may sulk, drop some older leaves or go completely dormant after transit. More often than not they are absolutely fine but feel obliged to mention the above.
